Very nice. Soft and squidgy, and very good for you. Even my very fussy 3 year old ate this......a miracle!!-12 Aug 2014

by Tara Kreider

I do not have a bread machine but it still turned out perfectly. It's a very moist, tasty bread. All it requires to omit the machine is putting the dry ingredients together, including the dates (I used dried and pitted rather than fresh), and then adding the water/oil/honey/yeast mixture (after the yeast has been activated) to it. I kneaded it for about 10 minutes and then let it rise twice for about an hour each time in our microwave with a cup of boiling water beside it to help it rise. Baked it at 350 for ~35 minutes or so. Great bread! I'll make another batch soon!-29 May 2009

by Dreaming

I make this bread at least once a week, it's a good source of fibre so you can pretend it's healthy if you leave out the nuts. It's highly sweet, so watch out if you haven't got a sweet tooth. The recipe is easily adapted to incorporate other dried fruit such as pears or figs. If you want to be able to find any chunks of date in the bread I'd recommend ignoring the beeps and adding the fruit only about two minutes before the end of the kneeding, otherwise the blade tends to just smooth them into the bread.-06 Dec 2003


High Fibre Date and Nut Bread recipe - Recipes

  • 275g/10oz Odlums Cream Plain Flour
  • 1 level teaspoon Bread Soda (sieved)
  • 125g/4oz Caster Sugar
  • 125g/4oz Butter (room temperature)
  • 125g carton Natural Yogurt
  • Rind of 1 Orange
  • 2 tablespoons Orange Juice
  • 2 Eggs
  • 50g/2oz Dates (chopped)
  • 100g packet Chopped Walnuts
  1. Preheat oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas 4. Lightly grease and base line a 900g/2lb loaf tin.
  2. Beat the butter and sugar together until smooth and creamy.
  3. Add the yogurt, orange rind, juice and eggs. Continue beating until well mixed.
  4. Next, add the flour and sieved bread soda and beat on low speed.
  5. Finally, add the dates and walnuts and gently stir until well mixed.
  6. Transfer to the prepared tin and bake for about 45 minutes until well risen and knife inserted comes out clean!
  7. Remove from oven and allow to stand for 10 minutes, then transfer to wire tray to cool.

Recipe Notes:

For easier slicing, wrap bread (when cold) tightly in foil or plastic food wrap and store over night.
Dates may be replaced with chopped apricots!


Cook's Note:

I have a small (3.5-quart) slow cooker. If your slow cooker is larger, the loaf will not be as high. You can also place the dough in a greased loaf pan if you have a large oval slow cooker.

If you like a brown and crispier crust, preheat your broiler and place the loaf on the top rack immediately after baking. Broil until it starts to brown. Make sure to stand by and remove the bread right away when it has the desired color it will burn quickly.

Instead of sesame seeds, you can use seeds sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, or rolled oats as well, or a combination.


Recipe Summary

  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup whole wheat flour
  • ¾ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 egg whites
  • ½ cup skim milk
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ½ cup fresh raspberries
  • ¼ cup fresh blueberries
  • ¼ cup fresh blackberries

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line 12 muffin cups with paper or foil liners, or grease if not using liners.

Combine oats, all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, applesauce, egg whites, milk, brown sugar, oil, and vanilla in a large bowl. Mix until blended. Fold in raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries. Divide batter evenly into the prepared muffin cups.

Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, 15 to 17 minutes.

Let muffins cool for 5 minutes in the pan before transferring to a cooling rack.

The Banana-Banana Bread

If you’re not using a silicone pan, lightly grease or line the pan with parchment paper, otherwise everything will stick.

In a bowl, thoroughly mix the bananas, date puree, egg and milk or plant-based beverage.

Add the baking powder, flaxseed and hemp seeds.

Stir in the flour and then the blueberries.

Pour the mixture into the pan.

If you want, decorate with a few blueberries and hemp seeds.

Bake for 55 to 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean.

Oh la la, your whole kitchen is going to smell delish.

History

Another easy to make banana bread? Yep. After publishing my Sunday Best Banana Bread recipe with 3 bananas, I was asked to come up with a fruity recipe that had less banana. So, without further ado, let me introduce you to this banana bread recipe made with two bananas: my Banana-Banana Bread! Hahaha!

With NO REFINED SUGAR, and nut- and dairy-free*, this banana and blueberry bread (I just love that combination) is super easy to make. It’s great for breakfast, as a snack and even for dessert. My little 4-year-old man said to me “Wow, mom, it’s so good. Is this a Madame Labriski recipe?” Hahaha!

By the way, this recipe is also scrumptious when you use gluten-free all-purpose flour. A genuine banana bread that’s just as yummy as cake, but is actually really healthy. How amazing is that? Hooray for date puree!

*If you make it with a plant-based beverage (soy, almond, rice, oat).
